Advanced Modern/Jazz

This course is for students with strong dance technique and an understanding of the diverse styles in contemporary, modern and jazz dance. The course includes work to increase flexibility and strength while developing a broader awareness of the dynamics of movement, spatial relationships, and diversity in styles of dance. This class focuses on choreography and developing an artistic voice while having students be part of the creative and choreographic process as pieces are created. Students in this class will perform in the spring dance concert, Progressions. Students may reelect this course for credit.
